I received an email today with a subject of “ GoDaddy Domain Account Upgrade Confirmation “, see the captured email looks like. I am not aware of GoDaddy’s upgrade confirmation so I checked the link provided to the email. The link behind “ Click here Upgrade account ” and call to action image “ Go to My Account ” are linked to an IP Address 22.214.171.124:3389 . I checked the IP Address owner, it is assigned in China. I don’t know about you, but GoDaddy is based in USA. The 3389 after the colon, is a port number use for remote access. Actually, this is the default port number for most Windows Remote Server or Terminal Server. Here’s the IP Address (126.96.36.199) Owner information: inetnum: 188.8.131.52 – 184.108.40.206 netname: XRNET descr: Beijing XiRang Media Cultural Co., Ltd. descr: Build A6-1702,Fenghuahaojing,No.6 Guanganmennei Road descr: Xuanwu, Beijing, China, 100053 country: CN admin-c: DL762-AP tech-c:
